The book consists of a large series of episodes in the legend of the mythological king of Britain King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. This section of the book tells how young Arthur pulled a sword out of an anvil, how he learned of his royal lineage, and how he thus became king. King Arthur loses to his enemy, King Pellinore , and is wounded thereof. Merlin advises Arthur to seek Excalibur. The Lady of the Lake instructs Arthur on how to earn the sword, and, following her instructions, takes Excalibur. He then meets Pellinore again, and with Excalibur's magic, he wins against him. The two thereafter make amends and become friends.

Green attempted to weave together the many legends surrounding King Arthur in a single narrative, claiming that Thomas Malory 's version of the story, Le Morte d'Arthur , was a loose collection of separate stories.

After Uther Pendragon 's death, Merlin the magician forms a stone and in it a sword.
